since you have such a problem with her english, why dont you try talking to her in chinese....???? yeah didnt think so... english is not their main language. i suggest dealing with it. whining makes you look childish.


你主席先生,是一个asshat。

I've never said anything about her English. READ MY POSTS! I did however post this in the wrong section. I ment to post it here.

Since I use my iPhone when I replied from my mail I thought it was the page I posted.

Some of you on LPF are very helpful. :) but some of you don't evin talk about anything laser related! You just make a laser noobs time on the fourm hell!

To the people who are personally offended by this mistake. Oops my bad!

Im not doubting her in anyway, and i take into account the language barrier, but even a free translator can make the document look more professional. Not putting anyone down :(

I don't know about the free translators... sometimes i see websites that offer content in various languages, produced by google translate or something similar.

I suppose they are good to get started on a translation, but if you don't know the output language, you may end up making a total fool of yourself.

Then again, even major media make these mistakes. One of the leading newspapers in holland had a report about a bomb that was loaded with nuts and bolts (as shrapnell). The auto-translated that into 'noten en bouten', which does mean nuts and bolts, but nuts as in peanuts, not the ones that go onto bolts.

There are obviously worse examples, resulting in obscenities i will not repeat here.

translators arent worth a crap.. what was said above was translated to chinese with google translate. the original message was "you,sir, are an asshat." translated from chinese back to english it reads "you, mr. president, is an asshat."...

just deal with it and stop whining.

I'm quite sure you send them Emails every Day. This is making them ignore you. O-like is slow but you always get your stuff mate. Just take it as it is.
Ever had a look to your SPAM-Mailbox ?

I have ordered from o-like in the past (no holidays in site) and everything went great. I recently ordered a flex drive and lense from drlava on Dec. 22 and it took 3 1/2 weeks and I'm in NV. The holidays make everything slow when you are dealing with this kind of stuff, your items will show up just as mine did. O-like is on the other sde of the world so keep that in mind and if I'm not mistaken Chinese New Years is soon as well.
